Looks a little shallow, Can not see any rebar and it doesn't look vibrated.

Hope no one comes along later and decides to dig under it and thinks the bank can be left as a bridge. (been there done that).

24” below finished grade

no rebar and no vibe. That’s how we used to do it

I remember many years ago I was working at an airport doing concrete encased duct banks. I carved my initials and date on it and when the resident engineer saw it he had a fit. I had to take a grinder to it. Hope you had good weather.

My god, were you at all nervous as the pour was getting close to the unfinished uncapped ends of your conduit? I don’t even like the feeling I get just looking at the pic

Not really. It was a pretty thick mix and easy to control. We are told to leave it 3ft back.

on another note , wouldn’t be the first time I have to bust up concrete. However , boss would not be happy on company time.

He would probably try to make us do it on our own time for being stupid😂

If you look closely , the vault caps are framed 12” higher, plus “4 for manhole cover , plus the difference you see from concrete to sub base.

so, we good 😁
